Anchoring a leafy corner of the city's south, Queen's University was founded by Queen Victoria in 1845 as one of three nondenominational alternatives to the Anglican-run Trinity College in Dublin—the other two were in Cork and Galway. Its imposing redbrick, Tudor Revival-style buildings were designed by architect Charles Lanyon, who was inspired by the 15th-century Founders Tower of Magdalen College, Oxford. Beyond the college boundaries, the Queen's Quarter is a bustling neighborhood with boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
